Interest on using mobile autonomous agents has been growing, recently, due to their capacity to cooperate for diverse purposes, from rescue to demining and security. However, such cooperation requires the exchange of state data that is time sensitive and thus, applications should be aware of data temporal coherency. In this paper we describe the(More)
Wireless communication technology is spreading quickly in almost all the information technology areas as a consequence of a gradual enhancement in quality and security of the communication, together with a decrease in the related costs. This facilitates the development of relatively low-cost teams of autonomous (robotic) mobile units that cooperate to(More)
This paper presents an innovative approach to use real-time scheduling techniques for the automation of electric loads in Cyber-Physical Power Systems. The goal is to balance the electric power usage to achieve an optimized upper bound on the power peak load, while guaranteeing specific constraints on the physical process controlled by the electric loads.(More)
Drug-membrane association of daunomycin, adriamycin and three of its derivatives, adriamycin-14-octanoate (AD-14-OCTA), adriamycin-14-acetate (AD-14-ACE) and N-trifluoroacetyladriamycin-14-valerate (AD32), was studied using phospholipid bilayers and human erythrocytes. The various drugs exhibited a differential affinity to membrane-lipid domains.(More)
The apparent Km and Vmax values of styrene epoxide forming monooxygenase and styrene epoxide hydratase have been evaluated in the liver microsomes of male rats, mice, guinea-pigs and rabbits. Epoxide hydratase gave much higher and more uniform Km values than the monooxygenase in the species considered.

Timed-token networks, such as FDDI, support both synchronous real-time traffic and non real-time traffic (asynchronous messages). The medium access scheme of FDDI guarantees up to one half of the total network bandwidth for synchronous communication. Further enhancements, such as FDDI-M, improve the bandwidth dedicated to real-time messages. However, the(More)
